HSL opens its ticket office at the Market Square ferry terminal on May Eve. On the same day, the Suomenlinna ferry switches to summer timetables.
The office sells single tickets, one day tickets and Suomenlinna tickets. You can pay by cash, credit or debit card. Ferry tickets can be purchased also from the ticket machines available in front of the ticket office. Helsinki internal single tickets are less expensive at ticket machines; at the ticket office tickets cost the same as onboard.
Both Helsinki internal and regional tickets are accepted on the ferries. Separate Suomenlinna tickets are accepted only on the ferries (i.e. with Suomenlinna tickets you cannot change to other modes of transport) and they are valid for 12 hours. Tickets are not sold on the ferries.
